Nuremberg, Germany 10th April 2024 — iWave introduces iW-RainboW-G63M: a System on Module (SoM) based on the AMD series, targeting next-generation network and cloud deployments. The new SoM features the Versal Premium series rich in networking interfaces, security engines, and high compute density required for a wide range of applications ranging from data centers and 5G to communication test equipment. The System on Modules and evaluation kits from iWave will be available for evaluation starting in December 2024.

iW-RainboW-G63M: The Versal Premium-based System on Module is compatible with an extensive series of chipsets: VP1552/VP1502/VP1402/VP1202/VP1102. The System on Module is integrated with 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, 256MB QSPI Flash, 16GB eMMC Flash, and 4Kbit EEPROM. Three high-speed expansion connectors supporting high speed transceiver channels up to 112Gbps speed and 192 user configurable IOs provided on the System on Module enable a multitude of interfaces available for the user.

The Versal SoM offers networked, power-optimized cores with many high-speed connectivity options like 112Gbps high-speed transceiver blocks providing superior bandwidth, multi-hundred-gigabit ethernet, PCIe Gen5 with built-in DMA, providing the flexibility to support a variety of data rates and protocols.

Versal Premium combines scalar engines (Arm Cortex A72 Cores applications processor and Arm Cortex R5 core for real-time processing and control) enabling compute for complex algorithms while enabling high levels of safety and security. Boasting high-speed cryptography engines, the Versal Premium series delivers 1.6Tb/s of line rate encryption throughput, making it an ideal platform for secure networks. With the System on Module, customers can build network and cloud applications with reduced development cost, reduced risk and time.
